Lighthouse Lens Collection

The Marquette Maritime Museum has one of the best collections of lighthouse lenses anywhere in the Great Lakes, including 2nd, 3 ½  and 4th order Fresnel lenses. When the DB24 airport beacon and modern acrylic systems are included, the visitor can see nearly the entire evolution of lighthouse illuminating systems. All that is missing is a Winslow Lewis lamp (and if anyone has a lead on one, please let our staff know!).
